BATON ROUGE, La. - Alexis Morris scored a career-high 30 points and No. 19 LSU defeated No. 23 Texas A&M 75-66 for the Tigers' 13th straight victory.

Morris was 9-of-16 shooting with four 3-pointers. Khayla Pointer also had four 3-pointers and scored 17 points with nine rebounds and eight assists. Jailin Cherry added 10 points, seven rebounds and six assists with Autumn Newby grabbing 10 rebounds.

LSU (14-1) is off to its best start since going 13-1 during the 2009-10 season and has its longest winning streak since winning 14 straight during 2007-08.

Destiny Pitts scored 18 points with four 3-pointers and had 11 rebounds for the Aggies (10-3), the defending SEC regular-season champions. Qadashah Hoppie added 16 points and Kayla Wells 13. The Aggies came in leading the nation at 43.5% from the 3-point line but made only 10 of 31 against LSU and shot 33% overall.

Texas A&M had a five-point lead early in the final period when LSU went on a 19-5 run to build a 10-point lead with 1:13 to go. The Tigers went 7 of 10 at the free-throw line from there to keep control. Morris scored 11 points and Cherry had all 10 of hers in the final period.
